President's Corner

     We are in the process of designing our annual conference on the weekend of October 24th.  This year, we are delighted to be back in Orlando at the Embassy Suites, Lake Buena Vista South. The conference theme is Engaging, Empowering, Energizing Effective Teaching and Learning.  This conference will be a great way to celebrate the profession of teaching, how to be engaged and effective as a teacher. Pre-conference and conference sessions will focus on various K-12 in many social studies areas.  Check the FCSS website for more conference information.  You may even want to present a conference session, so submit a proposal! Make plans now!  Attending conference will make you an FCSS member!
